Stop


Stop, don't go there, or stop, don't do that anymore.  I was riding to work the other morning and decided to take a picture of the fireworks set up for A Capital Fourth, and came up against a fence. down along the reflecting pond between the World War II memorial and the Lincoln Memorial, they have set up the fireworks, and the path is fenced off with a STOP.  

A comment on Facebook this morning brought me to one of my other favorite Stops, stop doing that.  Five and half years ago I accidentally left my alarm clock off one morning.  I woke up in a panic and then realized that I would make it to the office on time without being shaken from my slumber.  Over the next few days, I started leaving my clock off, and to my great surprise I was making it to the office on time.  And I was sleeping better and feeling better about waking up.  Last year I set my clock three or four times, when I had an especially early meeting or flight..  So, STOP alarming yourself awake each morning.  The world won't come to an end.

  3. I wish I could wake up without the alarm. No matter what time I go to bed, I will sleep until at least 10AM without an alarm. Good or bad for me, it's been this way since I gave up the morning paper route back in 1978 or 1979.

    Peace <3
